        To be fair to superfan, the link looks like it’s part of the ad ribbon that runs along the side of the page. I didn’t notice it until I read your comment.

    Would have been a better meet had Indiana and more specifically Kennedy Goss been invited.

    I guess anybody could pretty much guess where the meet is taking place. But since this is half press release and half promo the the first or second sentence should always include where the meet is being held and the DATES. Always. Its common sense and also good PR/Journalism….
